This Green Earth - June 28, 2016

this_green_earth_photo_3.jpg

  Last fall, The Park City Council declared that the city’s municipal works would be net zero with respect to carbon consumption by the year 2022.  In addition, they announced that the city, as a whole, would be net zero by the year 2023. But what does net zero look like?  How is it calculated? And what environmental benefits does it provide the city and its residents?  Joining Chris and Nell in the first part of the of the show to answer these questions  and provide examples of how the city is already reducing its consumption of coal, oil and natural gas is Andy Beerman, Park City business owner and city councilman.

Then, in the second half of the program,  Chris and Nell talk about an interesting land conservation program being sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service.  Janet Valle works for the U.S. Forest Service, under the Forest Stewardship and Legacy division, and she discusses the grant process and the environmental, educational and recreation benefits of forest stewardship under the program.
